WORK. A-1 Roofing Inc. shall provide all labor and materials required to perform the Scope of Work set forth in the Offer (the “Work”). If Work is to be performed over a period of more than sixty (60) days, the Work shall be deemed to be substantially complete on the date that A-1 Roofing, Inc. issues its final invoice relating to the Work, unless Customer, within two (2) weeks from receipt of said invoice, delivers to A-1 Roofing, Inc. a written notice that Customer disputes that the Work is substantially complete and identifies the portions or aspects of the Work that Customer contends have not been completed. If Customer delivers such written notice to A-1 Roofing, Inc., the “Date of Substantial Completion” will be the date that Customer acknowledges in writing that the Work is substantially complete, but such acknowledgment may not be unreasonably delayed or withheld. CONDITIONS AND EXCLUSIONS.
